Excellent information, thank you. I have to make the obvious comment that this record is hardly inspiring and makes the renewal of his contract difficult to understand. Am I missing something?

An embarrassment of riches. Maybe not. Is Joeli Veitayaki available? Same weight as Milasinovich. Apologies for misspellings of his name.

There are not many 20st props around so big G will be given time. He had a bad knee injury and these big lads take a lot longer to get into match shape than a backline player. Some never do.

He’s a big lad who plays both sides of the scrum so handy enough to have around, especially when it’s unclear which, or how many, props Farrell is likely to draw out of his beanie.

You can never have enough tight heads so if Dan rates him he should be kept. Otherwise you have to hunt for another IQ tight head while Munster sign him and he turns into a worldie.

Rumours Kyle McCall is retiring and Kane would be backup to the backups so when you reach that level, and need to cut numbers, someone who can play both sides is more likely to be retained.

So the question marks remain Faddes and McBurney ?
From the rolling glens of Antrim through the hills of Donegal we will stand and shout for Ulster as we win both scrum and maul from the lovely lakes of Fermanagh tae the shores of ould Lough Gall we will scream and shout for Ulster as we beat them one and all!

That's great. We have had props who covered neither side of the scrum.

Have not heard a thing. I only hope for his sake if it's bad news that the bulls look after him.
